What You Talk About Comes About
Years ago, I was listening to a CD program by
Earl Nightingale. He said, "Only talk about your health
if it is good." This demonstrated the power of speech and
made a powerful impression on me and I have followed that advice.
Truly there is only one person you need to go into detail about
your health and that is your doctor. No one else really wants
or cares to hear about it.
I come from a family that loved to talk about
their health and how sick they were. My mother once sent out
a Christmas letter to all her friends and family that outlined
all the illnesses and operations that she and my father had
dealt with that year. After my father died, one of his friends
told my sister how much he liked my father, but couldn't stand
to be around him in the later years because all he talked about
was his bad health.
The problem with talking about your bad health
isn't that you will bore all your friends to death; although
that is the risk you take. You, also, are listening to what
you are saying. Words are powerful and your subconscious mind
hears everything you are saying and takes it seriously. What
you talk about will come about. The more you talk about bad
health the more bad health you will get. Whatever you focus
This leads me to the current situation about the
economy. Everyone is talking about how bad the economy is. The
more everyone talks about it the worse it seems to get. The
fear factor goes up and people begin to react instead of being
proactive. According to Wallace Wattles, author of "The
Science of Getting Rich," 'Guard your speech. Never speak
of yourself, your affairs, or of anything else in a discouraged
or discouraging way. Never admit the possibility of failure
or speak in a way that implies failure as a possibility. Never
speak of the times as being hard or of business conditions as
being doubtful.' Mr. Wattles also states that in the hardest
of times your will find your greatest opportunities.
What you talk about comes about. This is because
you are putting it out into the Universe. Your focus is on what
you are talking about. What you focus on expands. If you don't
want more, hard times in your life, stop talking about the hard
times. Focus on the opportunities, what you have and what you
can do to move forward. Talking about the hard times isn't going
to change them. Taking action will. If you want something to
talk about, talk about what you are doing to make the hard times
Are you spending your time talking about what
you don't want more of?
Today, guard your speech. Don't talk about anything
that isn't positive. Focus your energy on what you can do.
"If you have enough push, you don't have
to worry about the pull." Zig Ziglar
"Years may wrinkle the skin, but to give
up enthusiasm wrinkles the soul. Worry, fear, self-distrust
bows the heart and turns the spirit back to dust." Samuel
"Worry a little bit every day and in a lifetime
you will lose a couple of years. If something is wrong, fix
it if you can. But train yourself not to worry. Worry never
fixes anything." Mary Hemingway
"I believe God is managing affairs and that
He doesn't need any advice from me. With God in charge, I believe
everything will work out for the best in the end. So what is
there to worry about." Henry Ford
